  1. Stephen, I like your enthusiasm and I am going to say that he is undoubtedly as good as Vontae Davis in his prime. Not just that, he could probably rival Darrelle Revis before he’s even taken a live snap. I have at least seen no evidence to suggest otherwise.
  2. Melvin Gordon is holding out because he’s a running back on a rookie deal. Castonzo has already gotten his second contract so there’s no reason for him to hold out in a contract year. Ebron is also in a contract year and while he may have outplayed what he made last year, he’s not exactly a prototypical every down TE. He played like 50% of offensive snaps. He was given the opportunity of a lifetime by Reich and Ballard and was put in a position to succeed. Neither guy is in a spot where they would benefit from a holdout. Now let’s say Darius balls out this year and next the way he did his rookie year and isn’t given a new contract going in to year four, that would be a situation where we could see a holdout. I don’t think Ballard would allow that. The way that he rewarded Moore and to a lesser degree Desir and Hunt, I just don’t see him letting it get to that point.
  3. Really digging what I’m hearing about Turay. I have high expectations for him and thought he was more deserving of playing time down the stretch last year. Our edge is setting up pretty nicely with Houston and Sheard as our vets and Turay, Muhammad, and Banogu for youth. Interior line is still a weakness that I’d have liked to see addressed but we’ll see how it plays out. Hearing that Collins is getting some play with the 1’s is pretty cool. Does anyone know exactly how the rotations are going with the DBs? I think Wilson has always proven himself on the field for game days but there always seems to be whispers of his work ethic being questioned. He looked good last year at safety so I’m wondering if they’re giving him more work there with Geathers always questionable health. I think a small dime set of Collins, Desir, and Moore at CB, Hooker and Wilson at Safety, and Geathers at LB would be pretty tough to throw against.
  4. Campbell and it won’t even be close unless he plays half the year and Brown stays healthy.
  5. I can’t believe they’d leave out the Collins/Painter/Orlovsky trio. Those three men are instrumental in Colts lore.
  6. Am I the only one who thought @crazycolt1 is a woman?
  7. ‘If you’re a left tackle and your name is not Joe Thomas, you suck.’ - Colts fans
  8. So let’s look at the names you mentioned.... Autry - An exceptionally slight (270 pounds) UT. Someone whose game resembles Raheem Brock and is adequate but not spectacular, a solid role player. Hunt - Ditto. A 6’8” inch nose tackle is unheard of. He far exceeded expectations and was asked to play way more snaps than he should. I like the guy, as I do Autry, but he is far more effective on a defensive line rotation. I do not want him starting, much less being our nose tackle on base downs. Fans have a bad habit of hyperbole when it comes to their own players, good and bad, and Hunt is probably our most egregious one. He had one sack over the last twelve games last year. He will also be 32 next year. Stewart - An actual nose by traditional standards, just not appearing to be ready by all evidence at this point. He had a poor PFF grade and say what you want about them, but their dline grades are always pretty spot on. I think his NFL ceiling is about Mookie Johnson level but that might be pushing it and certainly not for another three years. Lewis - Honestly I am not nearly as high on him as Ballard or any of my fellow Colts fans. I really hope I’m wrong but he did not impress me on the edge, and he looked equally unimpressive when he moved inside. His best NFL comp is Keyunta Dawson. If he meets the expectations of what most seem to be putting on him, he is also redundant to Autry. Robinson, Thompson, Shippy, Jegede - Four additional undrafted rookies that are at least half camp bodies should probably not even be listed among the names to make anyone feel better about that position being good to go. That’s not to say they’re gonna be bad. I really like the Thompson and Shippy signings. I hope they turn out to be Damon Harrison and John Randle. But most likely they’re all out of the league after preseason and looking to sign deals with the Saskatchewan Roughriders. Bottom line, while they far surpassed their own abilities last year in bottling up some big time backs like Saquon, Zeke, and Derrick Henry, I don’t feel comfortable counting on the same production out of guys who are at best third and fourth men on a dline rotation. I think it could end in an ugly result using an interior dline of Raheem Brock, Keyunta Dawson, Mookie Johnson, a string bean, and a random assortment of undersized rookies from powerhouses like Charleston Southern and Alcorn State.
  9. BDB definitely appears to have a fetish for length across all positions. He just wants guys that can measure up to him. Honestly though I hope he isn’t living and dying by the measurements as much as it kind of seems. For instance, he’s shown a desire for long interior dlinemen but statistically the better DTs have been of the shorter, low center of gravity types like Donald and Atkins. It remains to be seen how the defense will perform and I’m not trying to be a blasphemer. I like lengthy corners and LBs, but I did take issue with some of our usage of draft capital and free agency.
  10. That’s a terrible take by PFF, and I am a big fan of PFF. That’s basically like the Browns saying ‘we already have Jarvis Landry, why would we want OBJ?’ Campbell has a strong grade from them, he’s one of the fastest in the draft, and he wasn’t even used as a deep threat at OSU. He projects better to the NFL game than any of our other draft picks. If anything the project edge rusher who graded out average, was drafted in the second round, and is being moved to a different role should be their least favorite draft pick.
  11. As a poster above said, he was a head case at Notre Dame and he’s had his share of issues since entering the league. I actually mocked him coming to us last year in the offseason on a cheap deal so I have no problems with it for this year either. He’s not anyone you want to rely on to play starter snaps but as a rotational lineman the potential has always been there just never realized.
  12. He had a bad first couple of games playing with a club on his hand, then he had to sit a couple weeks to heal, came back and took a few weeks to get going but once he did he was a damn stud. https://www.profootballfocus.com/news/pro-colts-quincy-wilson-improved-late-in-2018-bound-for-strong-2019-campaign
  13. I know this thread is more about Ajayi and other potential visits but I just want to echo what folks have said about CJ Anderson. He’s really the only FA back I’m interested in. I’ve loved him since his first season as a Bronco and it was nice to see him still running hard after getting a chance with the Rams. Some guys you just root for and I’d love to root for him as a Colt.
  14. I’m not super enthused about giving him so much money but his last three years are practically mirror images of Sammy Watkins three years prior to getting $12M a year from KC. I wouldn’t have guessed he’d eclipse it but it’s not surprising if he gets a similar contract to Watkins. Every situation is different but Watkins contract didn’t prevent the Chiefs from having arguably the best offense in the league last year.
